If anyone has put any pro racquet on an RDC and know their Swingweights that would be awesome.

Exactly, thanks so much. I am just trying to organize this to consolidate pro specs for players who would like to try their favorite pro's customizations.

Greg. with your extensive background i would be very curious as to which rackets you suggest? Id really appreciate some info. i played competitive tennis in college and just finished. I am looking to find some new rackets because i do not like the ones i used in college.

Greg,
What grip size is Federer using? It looks like a 3/8 in the pic on your site but I've heard numerous times its closer to a 1/4 or 1/8. Thanks!

These come to mind:

1) Personal racquet technicians
2) Priority One
3) RPNY
4) Bosworth International
